Computer programming for everybody.

Guido van Rossum, along with a few other collaborators, sent in a proposal
[1] to DARPA (the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) entitled
"Computer Programming for Everybody." The purpose is to make programming
accessible to a much larger portion of the population through the creation
of an appropriate set of tools and training materials. "We compare mass
ability to write and modify software with mass literacy, and expect that
equally fundamental changes to society may ensue." The language of choice,
of course, will be Python. This looks to be an interesting project.
